Gordon Haber’s Insights into Alaska’s Most Misunderstood Animal
The crash of Gordon Haber’s research plane in Denali National Park ended his life, his research, and his fierce advocacy for Alaska’s wolves. Among Wolves is a journey through Haber’s 43-year study and his startling findings. We witness astonishing cooperation as wolves hunt, raise pups, and play, and we watch the devastation to wolf families caused by hunting, trapping, and predator control. Reading Haber’s field notes and journals, hearing stories from friends, we feel the passion and wonder that Haber never lost.
“This book, compiling Gordon Haber’s lifetime dedication to studying and protecting wolves, is an immensely important addition to the literature. He knew each one as an individual, observed the disruption of social bonds every time a pack member was killed. Among Wolves will enable those who were not fortunate enough to meet him to be inspired by his amazing stories, as I was. And it will help all those involved with wolf conservation long after his tragic death. Gordon was a hero, and I am sure the wolves howled when his plane crashed–animals know.”

“Among Wolves is a bargain ticket for an incredible boots-on-the-ground and camera-in-the-cockpit science journey with the late Dr. Gordon Haber. Author Marybeth Holleman, an Alaskan who knows the country, will take you on a white-knuckle trip that will thrill you, anger you, and would have made Gordon Haber proud. Enjoy the ride.”
~ Tony Knowles, Governor of Alaska 1994-2002
“Artfully framed by Marybeth Holleman, Among Wolves captures the passion brilliance, and clarity that was Gordon Haber. But most important of all, this compelling, accessible volume showcases Gordon Haber’s life’s work among the wolves.”
